5:01am
101 near trimble is where we sent edgar our photographer this morning. so far northbound and southbound 101 are all moving at the limit between san jose and santa clara. let's go to our maps and check the travel times on westbound 580. again, usually one of our first spots to get a little busy through the livermore valley but no delays so far this morning in the green, 16 minutes between the altamont pass and the dublin interchange. and bart now has more than 30 trains and fortunately this morning they are all on time. that's traffic. back to you. >> thank you. right now, firefighters are trying to prevent a southern california wildfire from spreading. the fire has already burned 9 square miles in riverside county near banning. at least a dozen buildings are damaged or destroyed including some homes. about 1500 people have evacuated as flames tear through the san jacinto mountains. >> we have to realize how quickly this fire moved. within the first three hours we
5:02am
were over 2500 acres. it's a very long skinny rapid fire. the difficulty was in getting evacuations because that's always our key, life first, property next. >> three people are being treated at hospitals including two firefighters. at this point, there are no details available about their conditions. developing news out of texas this morning. an overnight shooting spree left four people dead, four others wounded. police say the suspected gunman is now in jail after the shootings in dallas. a suburb there called desoto. police say the person killed two people at the dallas home of his ex-girlfriend and when he discovered his ex-girlfriend was not there, he drove to another home and desoto and shot her and others there. >> they say that he shook their homes like boom! so they say they knew that he had to have like a big gun or something like [ indiscernible ] >> police say that shooter ran out of ammunition and officers arrested him. it's been another violent night in oakland. there are reports of several shootings and at least one
5:03am
stabbing under investigation this morning. and today oakland police are trying to learn if a baby's murder is related to a killing last weekend. a small memorial has been set up in front of the east oakland house where a 1-year-old and his father were killed. 20-year-old andrew thomas and his 1-year-old son were visiting from fresno. they were sleeping in a back bedroom when someone went into the backyard and opened fire through a window and a wall. >> pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, like eight or nine times. >> i just wish it would stop. i don't want, you know, my other cousins to try to retaliate. >> thomas' cousin was killed in oakland last weekend. police think yesterday's killings may be connected to that. a parolee from hayward was arrested for the murder of thomas' cousin. 33-year-old kendell eatmom is accused of killing aquino rivera as he sat in a car on saturday. oakland police are still trying
5:04am
to solve two other murders. 8-year-old alaysha carradine was shot in the diamond district three weeks ago on a sleepover and a week after that, 66-year-old judy salamon was shot at maxwell park. violence is out of control and the mayor is turning to young people for help. the mayor and police officer met with members of youth uprising to get them behind operation cease-fire. its program to stop crime before it happens by rounding up the most violent people in the city. kpix 5's christin ayers asked the mayor about implementing the program. >> reporter: it hasn't been fully funded to this point. why have we been waiting so long, it's been months? >> i think -- >> let me just say. cease-fire is absolutely my number one strategy for reducing violent crime, shootings and murders in this town. >> cease-fire currently has no permanent director and a few officers are working with it on a part-time basis but the chief claims that will change. family and friends are
5:05am
growing more concerned about a missing oakland woman. they spent much of yesterday putting up pictures of sandra coke. she was last seen at her home sunday night. investigators say she may have been investigating a tip about her missing dog who was taken during a recent burglary. coke's car was found in an apartment complex parking lot monday night. >> i really am worried about her. i hope she is found as soon as possible. >> coke is an investigator for the federal defender's office which represents death row inmates. but her coworkers do not think her disappearance is connected to any cases she was working. 5:05. bart and the unions trying to negotiate new contracts can't even agree on how far they are apart. bart says the gap is $100 million. the union said no, it's not that big. it's just $56 million. kpix 5's anne makovec is at walnut creek. i understand they aring about to get back to the bargaining table. that's -- i understand they're about to get back to the table table. that's good news.
5:06am
>> reporter: yes, management and the unions will be back at the bargaining table. we are hoping they are going to make some progress because in the meantime, we have got riders here at this walnut creek bart station and all around the bay waiting to find out what is going to happen come monday morning. also in the meantime, a three- man panel is writing a report to present to the governor by sunday so he can decide whether or not to order a 60-day cooling-off period. bart wants it, the unions do not. yesterday the two sides couldn't agree on basic facts like the gap between the proposals on wages and benefits, even how much the average worker is paid. >> it no secret that at this point in bargaining i would certainly expect there to be fewer proposals on all sides on the table. and so i'm a little surprised to hear you think that this can be achieved by sunday night. >> reporter: sunday night is the deadline for either a new contract agreement, another
5:07am
contract extension, or that cooling-off period. if none of those three things happen, we could see another strike as soon as monday morning. it sounds like the cooling-off period might be the more likely way to avoid the trains stoppage on monday morning. this panel, though, isn't going to make a recommendation to the governor, just the facts. >> how likely is it that the governor will order that cooling-off period. >> reporter: you know, it is hard to tell. but judging from history, the last five times the governor has ordered a panel to convene like the one that we saw meeting yesterday, there has been a cooling-off period ordered. >> seems likely. anne makovec live for us in walnut creek this morning, thank you. time now 5:07. today crews will take a big step in fixing the bad bolts on the new eastern span of the bay bridge. today the first concrete will be poured for a steel saddle. that saddle will do the job the bolts were supposed to handle. it's part of the backup plan after 32 bolts broke on the bridge earlier this year.
5:08am
in bay area news, a gun buy- back event similar to this will be held this evening in hopes of reducing violence in san francisco. guns in working condition can be turned in for $100 while assault rifles get $200. the event is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the u.s. bank parking lot at 22nd and cap street. the city of santa clara has put the brakes on a multi- million dollar library construction project. the county's oversight board is requesting the city return the funds set aside to the library. so far 11 of $19 million has been sent to build the structure. supporters of the library are holding a rally this weekend. the library was set to open in december. 5:08 now. place your bets. why what one experts says about the 9ers chances of winning the super bowl. also ahead -- >> i think we have some future engineers here. >> behind sized warriors.
5:09am
how these kids are improving their focus at camp. >> and nine lucky californians got a piece of last night's powerball winnings. we'll tell you where one of those winning tickets was bought here in the bay area. >> if only we had that lotto in the weather department. i would warm things up in a hurry. they are going to warm up but not in a hurry. forecast coming up. >> not so lucky in up napa county. in calistoga both directions of route 29 shut down. the rest of the morning drive is coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
5:10am
5:11am
5:12am
ball tickets. nobody in the 448- m it was worth the wait for at least three people who stood in long lines waiting to purchase powerball tickets. in fact, one of the tickets bought in new jersey. nobody in california won, though. a piece of the $448 million pie. but one minnesotan and two people in new jersey will be splitting the jackpot. the two winning tickets in new jersey were sold at stores just 60 miles apart. how about that? including as you see that supermarket south brunswick, new jersey. i imagine it will be a very popular place. >> going to stop & shop next time. that's it. >> kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran is at a gas station in sunnyvale where someone bought a ticket that hit five of six numbers. someone cashed in. >> reporter: little do they know. we are at a gas station. they probably popped in filled up their tank and said yeah, i'm going to get a ticket and now they are waking up happier
5:13am
and richer this morning. there were long lines all across the state and country for powerball selling locations. this winner is standing in the right one and they will take home $289,000. that's because as you mentioned, frank, they had five of the six winning numbers. they were just missing that powerball number and they aren't the only ones here in the state. it turns out there were eight other tickets in california sold with that same combination all numbers but that powerball. >> for a $2 ticket, $289,000, that's probably not a bad deal. reporting live in sunnyvale, back to you guys. >> frank informed me he would pick 59. he would have one of the numbers. >> i would have one number. woo. >> has the winner come forward yet, cate? >> reporter: yes. it's me. [ laughter ]
5:14am
>> reporter: kidding! no. we actually don't know who the winner is just as of yet. but who knows. maybe they are waking up this morning and watching this program going, i probably should turn in that ticket right about now. >> the minute you hear where it was bought, really, sunnyvale? i bought a ticket there! [ laughter ] time for traffic. did you buy any tickets, liz? >> i didn't. i wasn't here on monday. didn't one of our writers do a big station pool? >> i owe him $2. i don't think we won. >> he lives in the south bay so i was thinking maybe sunnyvale? >> now we know. >> all right. let's hit the roads and show you what's going on outside. brian will talk more about the morning drizzle but heads up, it's slick, two hands on the steering wheel crossing the golden gate bridge. they should have four southbound lanes open shortly if not already. 2 in the northbound direction. they have been doing the lane changes the last half hour or
5:15am
so. to our maps and checking the travel sensors on highway 4, there was some overnight roadwork in the eastbound lanes of highway 4 approaching loveridge. that was all cleared out by 4:00 this morning. there may still be a little bit in the westbound direction. we're seeing our usual congestion now coming past "a" street out towards loveridge. hey, we have a giants game going on later this afternoon. so heads up if you are anywhere near at&t park, embarcadero, if you get backed up. 12:45 giants take on the brewers. there's also a 49ers game over at candlestick this evening. all right. westbound 580 coming through the altamont pass, seeing a few brake lights now. up to about vasco. and then things turning back to green. only 16 minutes so you can beat the rush. you can head out now, no big delays through tracy. bart systemwide on time has 35 trains or so all running with no delay. muni, caltrain and ace train number one also all on schedule. that's your latest "timesaver traffic." here's brian with your
5:16am
forecast. >> boy, was that comprehensive? nicely done there, liz. [ laughter ] numbers in the bay area mostly in the 50s and 60s and we have fog and drizzle. not a surprise, but it may surprise you to learn that things are finally going to change a little bit in the bay area as that low pressure that's been hanging offshore like an unwanted in law is finally going to be moving inland and disappearing and warming things up in the bay area but not warm up for the outside lands festival this weekend. i think paul mcer cart any is showing up. 59 and overcast skies for the most paris, cloudy and cool this -- 59 and overcast skies for the most part, cloudy and cool for this weekend at the concert. we have a warming trend under way for the bay area, slight as it is, we'll take what we can get. that cool low that's been abeam san francisco since 1973 is finally going to begin to push inland. and as a result, while cool temperatures continue today, we will begin to slowly warm it over the weekend. could get a thunder bumper or two in the sierra as well if you are heading toward yosemite. for today out of the airport

5:24am
season in 2 2/3. sogard, two runs score on his second triple of the season. but chapman would go one, two, three striking out jed lowrie with 103-mile-an-hour fastball. as lose now tied with texas for first. giants hosting the brewers. tied in the 8th. madison baumgarner threw it away. pablo probably should have got t one run scores. madison baumgarner would leave the game as the brewers tag on four more. so san francisco loses 6-1. and it's bad. they are 13 games out of first place. how about some good news? 49ers football tonight at 6:00 on kpix 5. myself, tim ryan, vern glenn will be there. join us, as well. have a great day, everybody. >> the 49ers are picked to win the super bowl this season. a computer program called the

5:33am
that much warmer than they were yesterday. we'll have details coming up. let's check traffic with liz. >> nothing usual. it's the ride coming through the altamont pass. we'll go trying over the wind turbines and you can see a few brake lights as you get closer toward the livermore valley and approaching hacienda. competing for the slowest drive time is the westbound 4 commute. earlier roadwork at loveridge should be picked up but there is a long line of really red sensors. red means speeds under 25 miles per hour. so a bottleneck there through antioch and things pick up into pittsburg and bay point and outside here's a live look this morning at the south bay. we have a live look through san jose, 101 near the trimble exit. and both directions are flowing smoothly at 5:33 this morning. back to you. >> thank you. contract talks resume this

5:35am
four years. the unions say it's more like 1.4% because workers would be paying more for health and pension benefits. >> this is a factfinding hearing. we might as well get the actual facts out. >> bart cannot economically continue to provide the benefits it currently provides unless those costs are shared. >> reporter: the governor's panel is going to prepare a report to be given to the governor by sunday. he will decide on the cooling- off period. bart managers initially did not want that cooling-off period. now they do which is really a sign about just how bad things have gotten. so what is it going to take to settle this strike? that's the question on everybody's minds. the answer might not be something that commuters want to hear. we'll hear from a bart board member coming up in the next half hour. back to you. >> it will be interesting to hear their side. why doesn't bart put more money on the table to satisfy the workers? easier said than done, i'm sure. >> reporter: that's right. bart would rather invest capital in more and better
